IMG_0584Happy Valentine’s Day, Fellow Flueddicts!

I’m not gonna lie. Valentine’s Day is a sham of a holiday! I hated it when I was single, and being in love does not make me despise this holiday any less. It’s a sham, I tell you. A SHAM!

The only thing I value about this holiday is having a simple reminder to honor those you love – family, friends, SOs, etc. While the candy and flowers are nice, 50% markdowns on candy the day after Valentine’s day is even better!

Anyway… though the holiday is a total sham, I do want to pay tribute to our loved ones for making our lives fantastic. For me, I’m happy to have an amazing Manpanion who puts up with all my craziness. My dear Manpanion: Thank you for making me the lucky gal who gets to walk through this life with you (while wearing our fantastic Fluevogs).

For the love of those who put up with our special brand of crazy,

j-ro

(you may barf now)

While she's not an Imelda Marcos fan, Joanne does love her Fluevogs!
